The Critics Rave: "I like the berries best." — Sara "Me too. And I like this stuff and the bananas." — Christina "It tastes like ice cream." — Ryan "While I was eating the soup my tooth fell out." — Erin To the Grown-ups: Even the youngest child can have a great time making this recipe. And if you use fresh-squeezed orange juice—wow! You'll find yourself making it even when you're alone. Cooking Hints and Safety Tips:

  • To help a young child measure the juice without fear of spilling, put the measuring cup in a pie pan or a baking pan. Put the juice in a small pitcher and let your youngster pour it into the measuring cup. If spilling occurs, it goes into the pan, and there is no mess.
  • Expect honey to be messy. Don't worry too much about exact measurements. Whatever your child can manage will be fine for this recipe.
  • Use a big bowl for the whisking. You can hold the bowl steady while your young cook whisks away. You can trade places if somebody gets bored or tired.
  • To help a young child peel a banana, cut it in half crosswise, then make a slit all the way down the side of the skin. Repeat on the other side, and give the peel a little tug to start. Then let your young cook do the rest.
  • Another banana note: Bananas are safe for even the youngest child to cut. Use a serrated dinner knife or a plastic picnic knife, and put a piece of tape on the handle so your child remembers which end to hold.
  • If you decide to use fresh-squeezed juice, squeezing the juice will be a fun project unto itself. It is quite challenging for a small child to squeeze juice, so be sure to provide a guiding hand and lots of elbowroom.
Tools: Citrus juicer (if you'll be making fresh juice), large bowl, whisk, small pitcher, pie pan or baking dish, 1/2-cup measure, 1-cup measure, tablespoon, teaspoon, serrated dinner knife or plastic picnic knife, ladle, soup bowls and spoons.


  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 1 cup berries (any kind, fresh or frozen: if they're frozen, defrost them first, and use all the juice—it'll add color to the soup)


1) Place the orange juice in a bowl. Add yogurt, honey and lemon juice.

2) Whisk "until it is all one color."

3) Place 5 banana slices and 2 tablespoons berries in each bowl.

4) Ladle the soup over the berries and bananas. Eat!

Note: You can add other kinds of fruit as well. Slices of kiwi are especially pretty.
